This painting is one in an evolution of abstracted tree paintings that I make. Trees are metaphors for people to me and I love the way they can communicate so much about human nature. Cerebral Tree is about how the intricacies of our brains make us who we are and give us the personalities we have.
This particular tree of mine has evolved from a sketch book drawing to one that I drew on a few cards for good friends, to a small art piece, and finally it needed to be expressed in texture. I am thinking I may make a stamp of one of these trees some day. I love to draw them because they are like little meditations for me.
